I’m pleased to announce that my spring/summer garden has been planted!
Last year was the first summer at our new house, which came with six raised beds in our side yard. I was so excited about finally living the dream and having my own vegetable garden that I went a little overboard. I planted several tomato plants, various peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, herbs, red cabbage, wildflowers, leeks, and watermelons. The watermelons didn’t survive the cold weather the first week we planted them, but after a few weeks, everything else in the garden exploded. The tomato plants got so big, the tomatoes weighed down the wire towers and bent them, knocking some of them down. The squash and zucchini plants were so enormous, their leaves overshadowed the poor pepper plants….
